Description: Craig’s Restaurant – A don’t miss Florida Keys destination specializing in "breakfast always", huge sandwiches and fresh fish and seafood. Craig’s is not only an historic landmark, it’s also the oldest continuously chef-owned-and-operated restaurant in the Upper Keys and a favorite of the locals. Come casual, you're in the Keys! We also have a pet friendly patio.

“Great food, casual atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2014

We stopped here by chance and were glad we did. Don't let the casual atmosphere fool you. The food is excellent! We had a wonderful meal and excellent service. If we had been staying closer we would have come back for breakfast and tried the Crab Cakes Benedict.

“Great Fish sandwich”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2014

We had a great fish sandwich at Craig's. The atmosphere was very nice. The bathrooms do need some cleaning/updating. The vent on the men's bathroom door is broken and you can see right in. The wall of the bathroom stall is a little odd, only about 4.5 feet tall.

“Never got what we ordered!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2014 via mobile

We tried this place twice and the service is a joke! First time we just wanted a light lunch and if we didn't order fish we got attitude from the server. One of us ordered chicken strips and she responded "really?" Sorry lady but we didn't order the attitude. She proceeded to bring out a chicken sandwich for the meal instead. Second time we went for breakfast to go. We ordered four eggs Benedict meals and received four egg sandwiches. Are you kidding me?! Service like this is unheard of and totally unacceptable where I come from. Needless to say no matter how good the food was we would NEVER go back.

“Wow! - Try the fish sandwich”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2014

As my wife and I were heading down through the Florida Keys we grew hungry and on a whim stopped at Craig's. We each had the grouper fish sandwich and were amazed. The fish was fresh and flaky - and most importantly not over powered by the bread and 'fixings' of the sandwich. The server was polite, prompt and quite professional. The restaurant was quite a treat. Can't wait until the next trip to the Keys!

“Truly exceptional fish sandwich”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

I love this place! The conch chowder is also one of my favorites. They put in plenty of conch. Very friendly service. A true locals place. Nice art on the walls by local artists, too. Owner's wife sells her scented salt scrubs, which are really a pampering treat to take home, with Keysy aromas (coconut, lime, etc)
